"Your Love Is My Drug" is a song performed by Ke$ha. It serves as the opening track on Ke$ha's debut album Animal.  

Writing and inspirationEdit

"Your Love Is My Drug" was written by Ke$ha, alongside her mother Pebe Sebert and Joshua Coleman. The song was produced by Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Ammo. In an interview with MTV, Ke$ha stated the song was "written on an airplane, in like 10 minutes" and that the song had a carefree message; it is "stupid and fun" and not to be taken too seriously. When asked about the final line of the song ("I like your beard") and where it came from, Ke$ha explained, "I've always been into bearded dudes. Hello, I'm from Nashville, I'm into hillbillies[...] the redneck look is hot right now, and that's great for me. I'm over dudes trying to look like they're in boy bands." Ke$ha later elaborated explaining the song's inspiration, "It’s about me and my ex-boyfriend, and our tumultuous, psychotic relationship. We’d act weird, like drug addicts with each other, calling and seeing each other all the time. I was in love at the time, and (the song) sounds pretty happy, but it’s a little bit of a dark song. You’re so obsessed with somebody you start acting like a weirdo. … I write about falling in love, being in love, breaking up because he’s a loser, being heartbroken. I not only sing about getting rowdy, but love."

The music video for the song was directed by Honey and it was shot on April 6 and April 7, 2010, in the Lancaster, California desert. It premiered on May 13, 2010. Ke$ha described the concept behind the video in an interview with MTV, stating, "I wanted it to be like a psychedelic trip of the mind, comparable with being so disgustingly in love with someone that you lose your head." She chose to also incorporate an animal aspect to the video explaining that she was "a huge animal lover". Ke$ha elaborated on the experience, "I also ride an elephant — no big deal! — and, um, I dance around a cave with black-light body paint and a python. I was in a cave, in the desert, and it was really fun." When asked about the inspiration for the video, she said "This video was inspired by the Beatles' Yellow Submarine movie, the animation aspect. There's a little bit of [that] in there too". Her love interest in the clip was portrayed by Marc-Edouard Leon, a member of the directing team Skinny. The video begins with Ke$ha waking up next to her love interest; she then proceeds to run away while being chased by the man. Ke$ha walks through the desert while split scenes of her are shown where she is riding an elephant and wearing a tiger mask while crawling around in the sand. They are later seen on a boat singing and pretending to row while digitally animated water is added. It then cuts to a scene of all animation in which Ke$ha is portrayed as a mermaid. The mermaid and the man share a kiss; the video then jumps to a scene on a rocky hillside with Ke$ha walking around the sand with the man standing above on a rock. The video then cuts to another scene where Ke$ha is covered in glow in the dark body paint while dancing around in a cave with a python around her neck. The video ends with Ke$ha and her lover sitting around a campfire while still in the desert. James Montgomery from MTV said that "Your Love Is My Drug" was a "supremely catchy pop tune" and that the video was "the perfectly blissed-out accompaniment." Montgomery chided the video for "not making much sense" but noted "that hardly matters" as "Ke$ha has stumbled on a perfect formula for pop success: Don't think too big, or too much. Sometimes an elephant ride is just an elephant ride". His conclusion of the video and of Ke$ha herself was, "It's a lot harder than you'd think to make something seem this effortless. Like I said, you can accuse Ke$ha of many things — but don't ever say she's not smart."

LyricsEdit

Maybe I need some rehab or maybe just need some sleep
I got a sick obsession I'm seein' it in my dreams
I'm lookin' down every alley I'm makin' those desperate calls
I'm stayin' up all night hopin' hittin' my head against the wall

What you got boy is hard to find
I think about it all the time
I'm all strung out my heart is fried
I just can't get you off my mind

Because your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love
I said your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love

Won't listen to any advice
Mom's tellin' me I should think twice
But left to my own devices
I'm addicted it's a crisis
My friends think I've gone crazy
My judgment's gettin' kinda hazy
My steeze is gonna be affected
If I keep it up like a love sick crackhead

What you got boy is hard to find
I think about it all the time
I'm all strung out my heart is fried
I just can't get you off my mind

Because your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love
I said your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love

I don't care what people say
The rush is worth the price I pay
I get so high when you're with me
But crash and crave you when you leave
Hey so I got a question
Do you wanna have a slumber party in my basement
Do I make your heart beat like an 808 drum
Is my love your drug
Your drug
Huh your drug
Huh your drug
Is my love your drug

Because your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love
I said your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love
Because your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love
I said your love your love your love is my drug
Your love your love your love

Hey hey so
Your love your love your love your love is my drug
I like your beard
